ACT Label template howto

Hey Guys,

 

I've been trying to  create a template for lables that will display for example the home phone number but be prefixed with "H:" then HomePhone .. so that is 1 text + 1 field, How can I have it so that the text doesn't appear if there is nothing in the field?  I can collaspe the field if it's empty, however the text will remain.

 

Can I have a conditiona statement whereas if the field is empty, don't show the H:

A conditional VB statement is part of the answer but it's mor complicated than that. What you want can be done but not fully through the report editor.

Re: ACT Label template howto

Wondering if anyone else has some ideas as to how I can do this... How are other people printing out stuff so that phone numbers are labled but also do you don't have a bunch of lables all over the page when there is no number beside it?
